Darlington Critique

Glen of Imaal Terrier

PD (2) 1.Hogburn’s Pajantick Razamataz. Well constructed throughout demonstrating strength and substance without coarseness, well defined head, good mouth, good front and feet, strong body, coat coming on well, elegant on the move. BP. 2. Hardy’s Amhard Lightening Flash. Nice overall shape and good balance but needs more furnishings on the legs to complete the picture, a little playful on the move but when settled moved OK.

JD (1) 1. Tobijanski & Tobijanski’s Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor. Good head with dark eye, well set small ears, giving pleasing expression, nice front, deep chest and well made body, tended to be a bit stiff behind on the move.

PGD (1) 1. Hardy’s Amhard Justin Thyme. Nice head proportions with good width of skull and strong jaw, large white teeth with good bite, nice body, held topline and good profile on the move.

LD (4.1) 1. Alstead’s Golden Spurs. Nice overall balance and good shape throughout, liked head and ears, well bodied with well sprung ribs , parallel rear movement with drive. 2. Roger’s Gleann Dynamo at Jeonty. Nice overall appearance and neat outline and moved with purpose, but preferred head of 1. 3. Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar.

OD (4.1) 1. George & Sullivan’s Ch Romainville Billy Whizz. No denying title in front of this boy’s name and a very worthy example, liked overall size, shape and appearance, just a little let down today but coat not being at it’s best, very sound mover. Dog CC and BOB. 2. Hogburn’s Pajantick Star Trooper. Well made dog, solid all over and lots to like, well handled to get the most out of him. Res Dog CC. 3. Howarth’s Donvaleset Liffy at Arkview.

PB (1) 1. Wither’s Patjantick Rockahula. Good basic shape but let herself down on the move and held tail down, coat in good order for age, just needs a little more confidence.

JB (1) 1. Rogers’ Jeonty Minnie Meme. Nice feminine head, well set eyes and ears, muscular neck, well bodied but overall appearance detracted by lack of leg furnishings, when deciding to put it all in moved with a fluid action.

PGB(2) 1. James & O’Brien’s Amhard Jessy Jay. Needs a little more attention to ring training as tended to stand a little wide in front, good head, nicely made body with well set tail, well angulated rear with good bend of stifle, in good coat, moved OK. 2. Hardy & Tune’s Arhard Jeez Louise.  Sound expression and good length of foreface, nice width of head, well proportioned body, not in best of coats and not using tail on the move.

LB (1) 1. George & Sullivan’s Romainville Jean Genie. Very attractive bitch and liked overall shape and balance, well made head, dark eye, small well set ears, strong neck, well bodied, coat in good order, natural and free mover. Bitch CC.

OB (2.1) 1. George, Garnham & George’s Romainville Fade to Grey. Nice overall appearance but not always using ears to advantage, good head, well made shoulders, good body shape, in good coat, moved soundly. Res Bitch CC.

Busy few days

The show season seems to be certainly starting for Glen of Imaal Terriers. In Finland Rosears Fuzzbuster was Best of Breed at Kajaani whilst in Luxemburg Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty took the top award. CH Tipperary American Girl JE took two back to back Best of Breeds at Monroeville and two Group 2s were recorded by GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned in Florida (why doesn’t the UK have such fabulous names as Greater Orange Park Dog Club?). At the Utrecht Show(Holland) Madra Athos Annowre Aobh an Solais was Best of Breed

It’s the terrier high spot of the year when National Terrier takes place and BOB there was Ch Donvaleset Bier with Ir Ch Abberann Karl taking the dog ticket. The two reserves were, respectively, Romainville Jean Genie and Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty. Best Puppy went to Romainville Jazzman.

Well done everybody
